I have worked for 15 Years in the field of counseling in behavioral health care facilities, neurological clinics, hospitals, non-profit organizations, and schools in India and in United States. I have earned MA in Clinical Psychology from Indira Gandhi National Open University New Delhi and now I am interning to complete my MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University, Virginia. For as long as I remember, I saw creativity and sensitivity as significant traits of my individuality.
I have years of experience working with children, adolescents, and families in various settings. For a long time, I have helped parents and adolescents manage disruptive behavior by helping them gain an insight into issues behind the behavior. I have also gained experience in individual and couples counseling. I am SYMBIS certified and have knowledge of premarital and marital counseling.
I am happily married for 25 years and am a mother of a young adult son and an adolescent daughter. I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds. I am a first-generation immigrant and understand issues related to immigrant families and acculturation. I have a clear understanding about challenges of adjustment and multigenerational cultural conflicts that may arise in immigrant families, causing self-image and self-esteem issues. In addition to English, I am fluent in Hindi and understand Urdu. I enjoy painting, reading, and journaling in my free time.
